Tale of a modern quilt


Holly's modern quilt

Holly’s modern quilt

Holly made a great Modern Quilt.  She also knew what she

wanted quilted on it so that made my job even easier.  Straight lines

in the light blue areas and Greek Keys in the dark solid blue area.

I uesd  polyester thread in the top and bobbin.

The back of  the quilt.  What a great idea, using up leftover blocks

from the top of the quilt for the backing. We also used a black

batting so if any bearding occured, it wouldn’t look so bad.


The orange color really stands out but fits in with the other

colors as well.


In the bubble blue ares, straight lines were stitched as well.  I used a

polyester blue thread in both the top and bobbin. The small orange square

was left unquilted due to its small size.

Have a great week. Linking up to Freshly Pieced.  I also dyed some fabric this

week.  Will show you what happened next week.

      HI Toni,
      I bought the black batting at Quilt Source, in Georgetown, Ontario. They sell to wholesale companies there. It does make a difference when you are using dark fabrics in the quilt.
      No bearding is noticeable at all.
